So far, you have seen that you can learn to be confident in conversations. You learned how a small change in your introductions can make a big difference in your confidence.
But now, maybe you say “And after the introduction? That is when I block. I do not know what to say.”
First, let me assure you: This happens to native speakers too!
In fact, with the conversation strategy you learn today, you will be better at conversations than some native speakers! (Not all native speakers have good social skills! But you will, after today!)
Maybe today, when you do not know what to say, you sit in silence. The conversation is uncomfortable. You want to hide in the toilets!
We can change that.
Never feel blocked in conversations again
When a conversation flows well, you feel the freedom.
The words come easily. You forget that you are making an effort to speak another language, because you feel comfortable.
How can you do this? By guiding the conversation to subjects that you are comfortable with.
This way, you have enough vocabulary to continue the conversation.
You have something to say.
And you connect with the other person.
I show you how in this lesson:
Specifically, you will learn:
- Typical “little” expressions to be friendly and to show that you are actively listening
- How to create a good connection with the other person, so they like talking to you
- The strategy to control the topic of the conversation (so you do not worry about vocabulary!)
- Why Americans often prefer to be polite and agree in small talk & conversations
After you watch this special lesson, come over to the blog, and share with me:
